TEDxBrighton is delighted to be returning on Friday the 31st of October 2014 at the Dome Concert Hall for its fourth consecutive year! The title of this year’s TEDxBrighton is Many Hands, and we will be exploring ideas around connectivity, convergence and community. We’ll be looking at the prevalence of technology in the networked age, how our social networks can leave us feeling more isolated than ever and how, in our world surrounded by screens, we are driven to desire the physical. We’ll be exploring how intimacy looks in the modern age along with ideas of connectivity across distance, flash mobs, subcultures, the maker movement and how skills once commonplace within our locale, have become rarities akin to art. We’ll present those innovative individuals whose work engages with that sweet spot between audience and performer, those who’ve brought ideas, theories and people together in unexpected places and those who are changing the face of technology to be more physical than ever. Speakers include Peter James, Karl Mattingly, Sam Roddick, Jacques Peretti, James Otter, Tom Lywood, Paul Bartholomew, Enrique Ardura, Ben Edmonds, Megan Leckie, Fox Fisher & Alan Pearcewith many more to be announced. The ideas lab will running in the Dome foyer throughout the day and aims to be a soap box for the very best ground breaking inventions, designs and new technologies from the South East and beyond. This year’s event will be moving to the Dome Concert Hall in order to cope with high demand for tickets.
